Housekeeping



This picture is the epitome of how I feel about housekeeping. You do the dishes, they get dirty again, sweep the floor, it gets dirty again. Make the bed, have to unmake it to go to bed, and so on...........

My soul sister! Housework is the most boring waste of time and I just hate it. Hate ironing too. With all the advances today, why aren't all clothes wrinkle free? The greatest disappointment in my life is that I've never been wealthy enough to hire somebody else to do the house cleaning. That is a really cute animation.

Women do the tasks that takes little muscle power, and few brain cells....So says men.
I think a woman invented the paper plate and her mother invented "premanlent press" clothes.
Men did invent the electric mixer, spin washing machine, clothes dryer, vacumn cleaner, refrigerator, and microwave, but only after they got tired of listening to their nagging wives.
So who works harder? HaHa
I like the picture also.

Thanks, Marian. This is the cutest picture but it takes very little to entertain me!!

Rocknc, who irons? Not me. The coolest clothes are 100% cotton. The wash and wear is OK but not as cool. Most of Guyk's shirts are wash & wear. Maybe you need a wife or a mate that just adores housework.

I loved the picture, too. Thanks.

Chevy Rose, I liked the picture too. Most women do the busy work around the house. I wait on Guyk alot. I have been told that I am not helping him out because he needs to get up and move around. He does walk around the yard. He can't find anything anyway. I put everything away so hopefully I know where it is when we need it. Thanks.

Sorry, Nickel, I keep forgetting, that "rocky" moniker sounds so male. I'm a female and already married these 30+ years... so a mate to do my housework is definitely out.

NICKEL said...

Well,Rockync, always stay open to opportunities. You never know. Glad you clarified that female/male issue. Please stop by my blog as often as you can. Gave me a good laugh.

Yanno?....I really don't mind "house work"..I rather enjoy it actually..a good sence of accomplishment I guess. But I tell ya what...don't try and stop me from a "mans" work, `cuz I dayum well do a shit load of that too.
I just tell my "Honey" if he would come in and fold the "white" cloths (ie..socks and underwear) once in a while...I would be a happy camper! LOL! I hate folding the white cloths!

Enjoyed your comment, Imp. We don't have a separation of labor either. I help do work along side Guyk alot. Guyk is much stronger than I am, but I have more staying power. He is all thumbs in the house.

But when I came home from the hospital after my back surgery, he did everything for me including helping me with my potty, drying my body after a shower & etc. I was so glad he was there for me.

Of course, all the dishes were dirty but we had paper plates & throw away glasses. I did the dishes a little bit at a time.

What I could not do though was bend over for anything including putting on shoes and socks and my clothes.

We very slowly got back to our old routine where I did all the housework. I am so glad it worked out that way. Thanks again.
